WIPOTEC-OCS, a manufacturer and supplier of precision in-motion weighing, track and trace/anti-counterfeiting solutions and X-Ray scanning equipment, will offer live demonstrations of two checkweigher-compatible traceability modules at INTERPHEX NYC, Booth #2261, October 19-21. The units offer pharma-mandated trace & trace capabilities that can be integrated with the company’s signature Electro-Magnetic Force Restoration (EMFR) weigh cells, combining end-of-line quality assurance with supply chain transparency.

Used worldwide in major pharma applications, WIPOTEC's TQS-SP Serialization Unit is a user-friendly solution for applying track & trace data to individual cartons. Offering tool-free format changes, the TQS-SP can handle up to 600 cartons per minute, with folding boxes conveyed by a specially designed, double-guided top band system that ensures stable positioning upon exiting cartoning equipment.

At just 801mm in width, the TQS-SP takes up very little floor space, and its intuitive operator interface touchscreen helps maximize efficiency. The machine features a precision product transport design that is highly adaptable to different packaging types, and its flexible print head and camera mounting easily adapt to various boxes. It also can apply tamper-evident seals to individual cartons.

Meanwhile, WIPOTEC’s TQS-CP Aggregation Unit provides exacting yet expedient semi-automatic aggregation of manually repacked folding boxes. The unit allows pharma manufacturers to conveniently assign units from a lower level – such as a folding box or bundle – to a higher one like a shipment carton. In doing so, it provides a reliable parent-child relationship that will soon be mandated by pending DSCSA regulations.

With the TQS-CP, the operator places packaged units layer by layer into the shipment carton. Each completed layer is photographed from above by a fully integrated camera, which automatically moves to a preset packing height for proper focus. Once the defined number of layers and units has been reached, the aggregation level is completed and a label is generated. The TQS-CP also can manage the next designated packaging hierarchy level (for example, shipment cartons on pallets). Pallet aggregation can be managed in parallel by an optional extension called the TQS-MP-EXT, whose readings are integrated onto a mobile scanner.

Both the TQS-SP and TQS-CP feature expedient setup and changeover through a software solution called ConfigureFast, which can control all system components including camera, printer and transport system. Remote maintenance and troubleshooting also is available.
